Tohkamori Inari Jina, a Shinto shrine stood in the middle of the sedate residential area. It was dedicated to 'Ukanomitama' which is associated with agriculture. Although this shrine is surrounded by the houses and no agricultural farms were seen around here, it could stand in the midst of the rice paddies in elder times. And the deity was respected by the locals much more than it is now.

The Torii was silhouetted against the afternoon light. A apartment was seen through the Torii.
